Warning: Contains spoilers from Season 3
DO NOT HAVE I Ever seen so much drama!
Season 2 of DO NOT HAVE I Ever left viewers with the happy ending everyone have been pining for; Devi and Paxton were officially boyfriend and girlfriend. Unfortunately, Daxton isnt designed to be (at the very least for the present time) and theres a good new love interest named Des (played by Anirudh Pisharody).
Season 3 leads to a means where we dont know just what happens, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, who plays Devi, told Page Six. But I was very shocked by all of the dramatic turns her love life takes, whether it had been with the brand new character, Des, or the breakup with Paxton. I was like, Dang!’
Ramakrishnan said she can relate with Devi to an extent.
Personally i think like I relate with her, in her journey being very universal, in the sense of her self-love journey, I could definitely relate with that when i feel lots of people can relate tot compared to that because I havent always loved myself, the Canadian-born actor explained.
I believe personality-wise, Devi and I are a lot more different, she continued, describing herself as more chill because she cared less about her grades in senior high school. Devi is a lot more intense with regards to school.
Amazingly, DO NOT HAVE I Ever is Ramakrishnans first ever role.
She was chosen by co-creator Mindy Kaling out of a large number of candidates after filming her audition tape at an area library using her moms camera.
I’d love to let you know that I felt I had the opportunity and that I felt confident, she explained with fun. That was definitely not the reality. I felt quite definitely so like I was doing something for fun, a random video of me will be delivered to these random people in LA plus they would maybe get yourself a laugh from it and move ahead. I thought I had no chance but I was like, Eh whatd I gotta lose?’
Ramakrishnan, who called her casting a Cinderella story, can be keenly alert to what her role methods to South-East Asian girls.
To listen to so many fans discuss how they feel so represented by the show, that warms my heart, she said. Thats among the best fan interactions because its such a long time overdue, really.
And for whether she hopes Devi eventually ends up with Paxton in Season 4, fans could be surprised by the solution.
I hope that Devi eventually ends up with true self-love and self-respect, Ramakrishnan replied.
